I was pleased with my recent case results in Northampton, Virginia.  One case involved a reckless driving by speed case at 90 mph in a 55 mph zone, in Northampton County, which was reduced to a speeding infraction.  The other case involved an accident case where the other driver passed away as a result of the accident.  In that case, my client got minimal jail time, even though there was a fatality.

  • January 6th, 2015 – Northampton GDC, Charge: Reckless Driving where the driver that was hit passed away as a result of the accident. Outcome: 64 days of jail, with 60 days suspended, leaving four days to be served (with only half of those four days actually served since it is a misdemeanor).  No suspended license.  My client had a CDL and drove an 18-wheeler for a living.
